The Virginia Commonwealth University School of Education prepares effective, highly skilled teachers, counselors, school administrators, higher education faculty and other education professionals committed to making a difference in the lives of children and adults and their communities, particularly in urban and high-need environments.

Located on the university’s Monroe Park Campus, the School of Education has a strong commitment to social justice, diversity and inclusion among students, faculty and staff, as well as in its academic programs.

The School of Education offers five bachelor’s programs, seven master’s programs, two doctoral programs, seven post-baccalaureate certificates and two post-master’s certificates.

The guiding theme of educator preparation programs in the School of Education is educator as critically reflective practitioner. Courses and experiences provide opportunities for individuals to be engaged in meaningful dialog about the nature and application of appropriate knowledge and skills to make instructional, assessment, counseling and leadership decisions that improve student learning.

The school has 155 teaching and research faculty, many of whom are internationally renowned experts who produce and disseminate scholarship that extends knowledge, improves practice and collaboration, and supports schools and educational and human service agencies.
